Official submissions to ISCM World Music Days
Shanghai and Nanning 2021

Tŷ Cerdd is pleased to announce the composers and works selected by the Welsh Section of the ISCM (International Society for Contemporary Music) to represent Wales at ISCM World New Music Days 2021, taking place in Shanghai and Nanning in September this year.

 

The Wales panel selected a shortlist of six composers’ works/proposals as the official submission to the international jury:

At least one of the six works included in our national submission will be performed during the festival (the international jury can, however, select more than one of these works).

27 submissions were received from Welsh and Wales-based composers, across 8 categories. The announcement of the works selected for performance across the ten-day event is expected in the summer. World New Music Days 2021 will provide an important platform for the selected composer, and a key opportunity for the profile of Wales, its composers and new music scene.

The jury was struck by the number and quality of the submissions and by the stylistic range, which provided a striking insight into the range of work being written in Wales, as well as further afield by Welsh composers.
